This function returns the number of top-level (root) snapshots belonging
to a virtual machine.
Identifies a virtual machine. Call VixVM_Open() to create a virtual machine handle.
(output) The number of root snapshots on this virtual machine.
- This function returns the number of top-level (root) snapshots
belonging to a virtual machine. A top-level snapshot is one that is
not based on any previous snapshot. If the virtual machine has more than one
snapshot, the snapshots can be a sequence in which each snapshot is
based on the previous one, leaving only a single top-level snapshot.
However, if applications create branched trees of snapshots, a single
virtual machine can have several top-level snapshots.
- VMware Server can manage only a single snapshot
for each virtual machine. All other snapshots in a sequence are
ignored. The value of the result parameter is always 0 or 1.
- This function is not supported when using the
vix.h, since VMware Workstation 6.0
